Clicking under Driver's Side Floorboard

When stopped, I can hear and feel a moderate clicking under the driver's side floorboard of my 2000 Wrangler, close to the shifting console. This is my first Jeep, so it could be perfectly normal. The clutch is really smooth, and I have no problems when driving, just hear a clicking noise when stopped. This happens whether in gear or in neutral, with and w/o the parking brake engaged.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

Midget with drumsticks?

Seriously though.. not that it has anything to do with the clutch/trans, but when you stop do you have the Jeep out of gear or do you "dog" the clutch when stopped?

LOL!

It happens if I 1 - keep the clutch pushed in when stopped and stay in gear or 2 - slip into neutral, set the parking brake and release the clutch.

I know this one. It's the shift linkage. Very common to jeeps. Go to the dealership it cost $19 for the parts bag. The rubber boot that holds the shifter to the body bracket rips and it taps against the tub. if you feel it under the floorboard at your feet I can almost guarentee thats what it is. It was a TSB a while back. Check out this link it will explain it all, I just did this recently and solved the same problem your having. It's VERY easy to fix even if your not mechanical at all, took me about 15 min.

This does sound like the same problem! Thank you so much! I'm relieved that it is probably an easy fix.

I just took a look, and the gasket is completely gone! Stopping by the dealership this afternoon to get a replacement pack.

Thank you so much!

No problem glad to help, I know how you feel I heard that midget with a drumstick under there for about a month until I couldn't take it anymore. I'm going to give you a piece of advice though. The body bracket on the underside have rubber bushing that will rip when you unscrew it so either have someone hold the underside while you UN screw from the top or figure out a way to keep those bushing in tact, I destroyed mine and had to super glue them back together. You will see what I mean.
